Last season, the New Orleans Saints returned to greatness with Sea Payton back at the helm. This season however, it's imperative that some of the Saints' younger players take over and break out in order for the team to truly improve. With that in mind, ladies and gentlemen, the New Orleans Saints' five biggest breakout candidates of 2014.
Looking to be in a starting role in 2014, Corey White is under quite a bit of pressure to produce. White has some ball-hawking qualities about him, and there's no doubt he has talent, it's time for White to show it.
A surprising rookie producer, Kenny Stills managed to garner 32 receptions for over 600 yards in the 2013 season, and going into year two, Stills is in a great position to improve even further. As things stand right now, Stills would most likely be New Orleans' number two receiver, and in that offense, Stills would be a good bet to produce.
Considered an absolute bust throughout most of his career, Mark Ingram finally showed some signs of life in his third NFL season, and it couldn't have come at a better time for the Saints. With Darren Sproles gone, Ingram's role in the offense is likely to grow, and there is a good chance this is the season Ingram finally proves he was worth his draft position.
A raw rookie pressed into action after Charles Brown proved to be an ineffective left tackle, Terron Armstead struggled to do anything great consistently, however, he did show flashes of elite talent. Armstead goes into his second season as an unquestioned starter, and he could prove to be the Saints' next great lineman.
Another player entering his second year in the league, John Jenkins didn't play very much last season, however, he has phenomenal potential. Heading into his sophomore season, Jenkins is likely to receive more playing time, and he could become a stud in the center of New Orleans' defensive line.
